I am an artist based in Louth, Lincolnshire.
I have been painting and drawing since I was child, After leaving school I was lucky enough to study my passion at both college and university.
I have a fine art degree and have tried a wide variety of mediums and subjects, including printmaking. I enjoy mixing mediums and adding texture to my work. In recent years I have enjoyed painting in watercolour the most, this medium allows me to express, great light, fluidity, colour and atmosphere in my paintings, but most of all I enjoy the unpredictable nature of the medium wet in wet and the creation of a unique piece of work every time.
I am inspired by my surroundings, I love a view, an atmospheric sky, a colourful flower, the light catching the water. Theres always something to see and paint, even in the dullest of scenes. I love to capture colour and light and to transform what I see with a beautiful glow.
I am a professional artist, I exhibit and sell pieces of my work, including greeting cards and prints.
I teach art classes in Louth Lincolnshire and Newark, Nottinghamshire and have a series of day workshops on Saturdays where you can learn to paint one of my pictures step by step.
I offer painting holidays and do demonstrations and workshops for art clubs and groups.
